20 Years

Come join us this year as we celebrate 20 years of creating brighter futures!

Starting with one volunteer project in 2002, we have grown over two decades into an organisation reaching over 900,000 people across Kericho county with life changing programmes bringing better health, education and sustainable livelihoods.

It has been and continues to be a spectacular journey with over 40 local staff and nearly 3,000 volunteers in Kenya, 758 Irish and international volunteers who have travelled to Kenya to volunteer and hundreds of volunteers in Ireland and around the world who support our work in many different ways.

We call it a journey … and we welcome you to join us on this year’s leg of that journey. Every month we will host an event, a mixture of virtual and physical, we will invite you to join in on our social media and via our e-newsletters.

Plans don’t stop here … we are also looking at holding an exhibition, publishing a book, commissioning a piece of music … the list along with the journey continues!
